Do you like them?

A bit like Marmite I guess - you either love them or hate them. I adore a pickled egg. I have done many variations over the years. Tried different eggs, spices and vinegars and do you know what? I love every variation.

It would be a sad day in the Straker household if the larder did not contain a jar or two. Not sure The Captain feels the same way if you know what I mean. 

The trickle of home produce being preserved trundles on. Runner bean chutney has been the order of the day lately. You can't let a glut go to waste! The very simple Mrs Watkins runner bean chutney recipe from the banker cookery book that is Prue's New Country Kitchen (by Prue Coats - Merlin Unwin 1997).

I love Marmite too by the way!
